Do you dabble in the history of Children’s books?

For many many years I have been trying to find a children’s book that was special to me when I was a small child. I only remember that it was about a little boy who made companions out of clay and then they came alive and talked to him. It might have been in the Golden Book Series? Sometime around 1953-58? The illustrations were memorable, very soft watercolors. Unfortunately I can not remember the little boys name featured in the story, but it might have been Henry.

I do not dabble, but maybe someone who will see this dabbles. Such a dabbler can chime in if s/he knows anything.
